„Man is literally split in two: he has an awareness of his own splendid uniqueness in that he sticks out of nature with a towering majesty, and yet he goes back into the ground a few feet in order blindly and dumbly to rot and disappear forever. It is a terrifying dilemma to be in and to have to live with.“

—  Ernest Becker, kniha The Denial of Death

"The Recasting of Some Basic Psychoanalytic ideas", p. 26
